Nope, I haven't started taking any odd prescription medicines recently, but my fun, new "let's go to the gym in the early a.m." has resulted in some slightly weird side effects.
First, I go to bed earlier. This is a good thing. I'm not 16 anymore and staying up all night to finish a gripping novel now leaves me virtually non-functional the next day. How did I ever learn anything in high school? I have to have been sleep-deprived for the majority of my 5 years.
Second, this means I have to be a bit more organized. I role out of bed and pull on my conveniently-laid out gym clothes and go. No stopping to brush my teeth or brush my hair. I leave, buy a chocolate milk at the 7-11 with my eyes half-open and drink it on my way to the gym.
That all seems fairly normal so far, yes?
Third, I am suddenly obsessed with tidying. I tidy every fucking night! If there aren't enough little cleaning chores to do, I organize a cupboard or something. This is not a big place I live in. I don't have many cupboards. And they weren't especially unorganized to begin with. It's madness.
Forth, I lay out my work clothes the night before, in spite of the fact that I have tons of time to do that in the morning after I shower.
Fifth, while I am still procrastinating on some things I have been meaning to do for yonks, I have become slightly more likely to run errands and run them in a timely fashion.
Since when did going to the gym have the side effect of making you organized? And shouldn't they have mandatory exercising at university if this is the case?
